People are so fascinating! Even though I don't often paint traditional

portraits, I do love painting people.

Children, especially when they are engrossed in something, are brilliant subjects for painting.

The enquiring innocence of childhood often comes through with a charm that is often not present in adults, who are so much more self-aware.
